I have been in PV for four years now, one of the longest duration of time for schools I have attended. The teachers and the administrators are always very warm and welcoming and the Panther Pride is through the roof. Everyone at the school supports each other and creates a welcoming environment. In a way, we stand as one and its a very safe feeling when there are like minds around you. Everyone at PV strives to be the very best but the school isn’t completely perfect. While PV overall is a great school the food is less than desirable and while there are clubs and activities it’s hard to find time to join one. That’s something I would want to change.

What I liked about Piedra Vista High School is they prepared you for college. That there is certain days when you are a senior and they helped you with applications or your senior exhibition. The staff is great on what they do like teaching, helping you with school, or helping your emotional needs. What could improve the school is the school lunches. Since the lunches are very small portion and there healthy foods are very not appeasing to eat.
I played football there and had a great time with everything that happened at the school but the administration was very poor. The teachers in the hall would dis agree with them and my personal though about then is that they did stuff for themselves more then for there job and the school but other then that the school was great. I played more then just football there, I also played rugby and wrestled. I really thought that it was a great place to go for activies and other fevents
